CINCINNATI -- December 04, 2012

Globaldata center servicesprovider CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), announced today that CTO Kevin Timmons is
scheduled to speak at the Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas, Dec.
3-6.

Timmons’ presentation, “Avoiding the Ultimate Gamble—Building Your Own New
Data Center,” is slated for 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at the Venetian
Resort Hotel and Casino, Ballroom B. Presentation content will center on
making enduring and cost-effective data center decisions that enable and
protect the business today while allowing for the inevitable changes the
business must respond to tomorrow. Timmons will be joined by Robert Adamo,
director, Western Region Sales, Nirvanix, the leading provider of
enterprise-class cloud storage services.

“Colocation delivers enterprise-level stability, security, and uptime with the
flexibility a CIO needs to respond to changing software, hardware, geographic,
and business needs,” said Timmons. “For a company to build its own data center
today, a CIO would need a crystal ball to see the future in order to avoid
unnecessary investment risks, such as infrastructure purchases that quickly
become outdated or building a dedicated facility that is over- or
underutilized.”

CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation,
engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and
power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability. Its
Sky for the Cloud™ interconnection and peering offering affords customers
freedom of choice about how to build out their capacity.

“The cloud requires redundancy in data center power infrastructure,
connectivity, and capacity on demand, and it creates increased pressure on
data center performance,” said Adamo. “Partnering with data center colocation
companies like CyrusOne has enabled better backup and archival performance for
our business and a substantial reduction in network-connection expenses.”

located in booth 418. The 31^st annual event targeting data center
professionals offers prescriptive, practical advice and strategic
recommendations. The agenda addresses information technology trends and
